Also, it gives them an explanation to why fans originally felt like the city looked more like Fortress Maximus than Metroflex.
And speaking of Metroflex... I also enjoyed the toy version of Scramble City. Mostly because I lived through that period of time, and stuff from the 1970s and 1980s are stuff I tend to look for on YouTube.

Yup. As much as I like Takara Tomy, they have been too busy trying to put out new products to complete continuities for ones that they already done. I mean... In 2007, they slapped together a Generation 1 continuity, allowing some later stories and aspects to be added. But they never said what stories are used and what stories are ignored.
And when it comes to micro-continuities, they only give us tidbits of stories or incomplete series because they seem to have not planned that far. Henkei! deserves a sequel, but they will not give it one. And UNITED just makes my head go when I try to understand it.
I guess since they are going to move on with Generations, it is safe to presume that this is going to be a continuity tie-in and not a toy tie-in... Which means we may actually get a story/series that makes sense.
